Sloway Cabin, a newer, beautiful log home, sits on twelve acres of meadow and woods that are visited nightly by deer and sometimes by bear, moose and elk. The land includes 7 acres along the Clark Fork River, just across the dead-end gravel road from the Cabin.
One hour from Missoula and two from Spokane, the Cabin has very convenient access yet feels like another world--secluded and private. Inside the warmth of the log walls and the high vaulted ceiling create an immediate sense of peace and comfort. At nearly 1,450 sq. ft. the Cabin feels just right-- small enough to be cozy but big enough for everyone. It's the perfect spot for celebrating a birthday, quiet anniversary, or hosting a small family gathering.
Long summer days are for swimming, floating, and fishing the Clark Fork, St. Regis, and Flathead Rivers. To the west, wonderful hiking trails lead to high alpine lakes along Montana/Idaho border. Mountain biking the Hiawatha Trail--over historic (and high!) railroad trestles and through cool dark tunnels--is another favorite. Trestle Creek Golf Course is just 3 miles down the road in St. Regis, where you'll also find two great antique shops.
Should you be able to come in the fall... lucky you! Crisp air, starry nights, and perhaps an evening bonfire. This is the season for more hiking and mountain biking, hunting, antique shopping, and enjoying Quinns Hot Springs.
Once the snow flies there's great skiing and snowboarding at Lookout Pass, just 30 minutes from the Cabin. Lookout has tripled in size over the past few years and boasts some of the Northwest's earliest and best snow. Silver Mountain is another 20 miles down the road. Not a downhiller? The surrounding National Forest has many hundred miles of trails for snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Or simply enjoy a cozy time playing board games, reading, and connecting with friends and family.
After a fun-filled day you'll love hanging out on the Cabin's wrap-around porch. Log rockers invite you to savor the lingering warmth of the sun as you enjoy a cool drink, recount the day's adventures with friends and family, and watch the sun set over the mountains across the river.
No matter what you enjoy at Sloway Cabin the time will pass too quickly. But you're sure to depart feeling relaxed, refreshed, and renewed.
Please note: the cabin is not suitable for young children--it's not child-proof and the loft railings and the stairway balusters are too widely spaced (see photo). Guest dogs will be considered with adherence to the Cabin's pet policy; the cost is $15 per night per animal.
Please have a look at the guest comments below, visit the Cabin on Facebook, and feel free to contact me for more information. Thanks!

The cabin is such a treasure and quiet retreat. We love hanging out with friends, enjoying campfires, working on the place, and the great nearby hiking and skiing. It's been very gratifying to share the Cabin and see the enjoyment and delight it brings to others. It has become a special place to many folks, including a number of return guests.
St. Regis and Sloway, in particular, are undiscovered parts of Western Montana, and the western gateway to Glacier National Park. I love the Cabin's amazing log construction and peaceful setting by the Clark Fork River. Yet it's only an hour's drive from my home in Missoula. Most of Mineral County land is public land with public access-- Forest Service, BLM, and Plum Creek. So there's great hiking, biking, hunting, and skiing close by.
There's so much to do near Sloway, but most people love simply hanging out and relaxing at the cabin, enjoying the peace and quiet. People use the cabin to reconnect with family, disconnect from the work-world, and generally have a wonderful time. It's the perfect place for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions.
Guest horses may be considered. Close proximity to ATV trails, great hunting, the Hiawatha Bike Trail, Quinn's Hot Springs, and indoor surfing at Silver Mountain's new water park.
